The new Mazda 2.0 Skyactiv-X engine, which will debut in 2019 with the Mazda3, will develop a maximum power of 180 hp in the compact model.

The Mazda3 of 2019 with Skyactiv-X engine will yield 180 HP!

Front of the Mazda 3 Fourth Generation

Among the most interesting compact that will arrive to the market during the next 2019 , such as the new Seat Leon, BMW 1 Series or Volkswagen Golf, is the fourth generation of the Mazda3 . Beyond your expected arrival for being a new model, we want to meet you for the new technology of your Skyactiv-X engine , a very striking gasoline mechanic.

As already we have told you on occasion, the Skyactiv-X engine is a gasoline engine that will explode the fuel inside its cylinders by means of compression without leaning on the spark of the spark plugs - although it will not totally dispense they-. Yes, as diesel engines do, but in the case of a gasoline mechanic ; something we have not seen so far.

Learn in detail how the Mazda Skyactiv-X engine works and all its secrets in this other article.
Variants of the Mazda 3 Fourth Generation

Well, according to rumors, the 2-liter Mazda3 Skyactiv-X of displacement, which will arrive in 2019, will yield a power of 180 HP . This mechanics will be progressively extended by the other models of the Japanese company as they are updated and, perhaps, replace the block 2.5 Skyactiv-G that is used in larger models of the brand, such as the Mazda6 or the CX-5.

For the rest, the same source reports that the Japanese compact, in addition to this Skyactiv-X 180 hp, can be configured with the new diesel engine 1.8 Skyactiv-D 115 HP , recently released in the updated CX-3 . The other gasoline alternative will be the 2.0 Skyactiv-G with about 120 HP , which is updated to receive micro-hybridization and cylinder disconnection in phases of low demand to contain fuel consumption of fuel and polluting emissions.

The starting price of the new Mazda3 for Spain will be 23,415 euros.

Mazda is one of the few car brands that is totally unlinking from the rest of manufacturers in terms of solutions to reduce consumption without penalizing benefits. While most of the mechanics of the market have opted for the " downsizing ", notably reducing the displacement (and number of cylinders) and relying on turbochargers, Mazda has followed a different path, increasing the displacement and using very high compression ratios . The Skyactiv-X does equip a volumetric compressor.

Little by little, and according to the changes in the industry, it seems that Mazda did not make a mistake when making this decision . The rest of the manufacturers are once again partially increasing the displacements of their thrusters and, according to the actual consumptions obtained in our tests (Mazda3 Skyactiv-G 120 test and Mazda6 Wagon Skyactiv-G 145 test), the difference in consumption between these two solutions in the petrol engines is non-existent, although it is true that the behavior changes.
